Parallel I can think off the top of my head is the hollow in Ichigo/Bleach. Except Claymore does a better job of holding on to my suspension of disbelief. I don't know. It's more...realistic and less childish, in a way, that makes Clare as a character so interesting. (That and the fact likeable characters die instead of pulling off a miracle near death.)
I find the dream Clare had of Teresa during the moment she got knocked out in the rain--slashers episodes--a suspicious thing.
Well, to the degree that she could not duplicate Theresa's power - at least at first, later on it's another story - she is a failure. OTOH, as a Claymore she might not have been especially powerful (again, at first) - but she was a Claymore, and got jobs done. I don't know if that's the case of Clarice, although I do suppose that she has killed a few youma herself, otherwise there's no reason to even bother sending her to an Awakened Being hunt. So while she's weake and her bond is incomplete, calling her a failed Claymore may be a bit too much.

She was scary enough even at "Golden Eye" mode. We'll probably never know, of course, and it could be that Clare exceeds Theresa to the point ttha she kills Priscilla. Still, to me that would also be quite surprising.
BTW, the way Clare seems to collect keepsakes of other powerful claymores, I'm getting the feeling that her nickname should be "Frankenstein Clare "
More like Sharingan Clare than Frankenstein Clare cause she seems to acquire other people's technique and has the ability to predict their movements.
4uk4ata:: You say "on the other hand" a lot...
Clare will never exceed Teresa. NO ONE will exceed Teresa. It's a proven fact if you draw some strings and connect the dots.
1) She raped the Abyssal-level Rosemary at 10%.
2) At 10%, she was also fairly dominant over Priscilla, who was at about 95%.
3) She's not even half-awakened.
4) For god's sake... she pwned the top 4 without trying.
5) If she was so godly against Priscilla at 10% only, then imagine what she'd be at 50.
/extreme Teresa-fan bias.
So Teresa ripped herself open? I thought that claymore were capable of manipulating her appearance, so she changed it to look twisted and grotesque...
I think you need to keep in mind the power of Prisilla that arose when she awakened.
Not to mention the Teresa herself knew that Prisilla would eventually exceed her. Also, keep in mind that Prisilla, being an antagonist, will loose. Meaning, somebody will exceed both Teresa and Prisilla. And with Claire's hybrid body, I'm sure its her. Not to mention the fact that she is the main character.
Clare is like ichigo in Bleach. Pure hybrid or the diferent way. Just wonder when mangaka will show similiar claymores to her.
And the main character point is quite big here, but still I dont think it will be the same as with other mangas for children where main chara pwns everythnig on its way.
Hmm... I thought that your power went up insanely high compared to what it was before you awakened, but capped at that new "insanely high".
If only Teresa awakened during that fight, too... it woulda been like God coming down to slap a bitch with an air conditioner. Hmm... if she awakened, all the Abyssals would be dead in a week, Priscilla would be stuffed with velvet, and Rimuto would be her chair. Though I can only hope that she'd spare Riful... I actually like her.
In a sense, if Clare kills Priscilla, it's still Teresa killing her. I'll be happy with that.
Undine naked front torso. So far nothing seems out of place.
Wait, what? That makes no sense.
